Look at different seeds or pictures of different seeds. Take a look closer at the inside of flowers, plants and fruit. Together, sort the different organic things into fruits, seeds and flowers. What is important about these kernels, seeds, pips which are found inside fruits? What is their job?
Use the story'Bees Like Flowers' by Rebecca Bielawski to help your discussion.
Make a clay/playdough model of a seed designed to attach to animals' fur - a burr with hooks or even make a junk model seed. Discuss together what sort of dispersal their model seed will be designed for. When you have come to a collective decision, think of different design features your model seed could have. For example, if you choose 'Blowing' then your seed will need flat or feathery parts and will need to be lightweight. Encourage children to write any ideas and facts about your choice of seed dispersal on the large sheet of paper so you can display them with your junk model seed when you have finished it and you can send us a picture or a JIT Mix so we can see it!
